Abstract: The levels of Natural Hazards that Northland Region is exposed to, excluding floods and climatic events, are relatively low. Of the landslide, volcanic, seismic, tsunami, and mine subsidence hazards considered, the landslide hazard is assessed to be the most significant. Slope instability is common in the region and there are large areas of creeping slope failures in some rock types. However, these areas can be readily and clearly identified and action taken if required. (auth)
